Runaway Victor Mancha Gets His Own Marvel Comic... But Who Is Writing It?
As part of the Age Of Ultron crossover this year, Marvel is launching an Ultron comic, featuring Victor Mancha, the son of Ultron who apeared in Runaways, entitled simply ULTRON. It will be drawn by Amilcar Pinna with this delightful cover by Kalman Androsofsky. But as for who is writing it... no idea. Anyone?
? Ultron took over the world. ? Ultron killed the heroes. ? Ultron...is your father. ? When you're Victor Mancha, android teen Runaway, "daddy issues" doesn't quite cover it.
So is this a one-shot or some kind o ftie-in miniseries? Or a new ongoing series? Rich and his vague posts make it a guessing game.
Most likely a one-shot.
And the numbering for these "Age of Ultron"-tie-ins are really cringe-worthy. One of our customers asked me why there are two issues of "Fantastic Four #5" solicited this month (one is #5 and the other one is actually numbered #5.au*). It is rather sad that Marvel has not enough confidence in their own product to name the issue "Age of Ultron: Fantastic Four #1" but have to include it into the main series so that the completists don't feel like they could skip on it.
*which is funny because "au" is German for "ouch!".
